About the conference
As COVID-19 continues to disrupt the local and global economies, significant challenges abound. For both private enterprises and public institutions, priorities are rapidly shifting under increased pressure. For organisations in dispute prone sectors, the efficient resolution of disputes is now more important to maintain business and rebuild community confidence and harmony. Increasingly, flexibility and reinvention of consent-based dispute resolution procedures are key to meeting the needs of disputants in these challenging times.
This premier two-day conference is the first face-to-face event in the region’s dispute resolution calendar. Supported by global institutes, government, industry associations, and sponsors, the program comprises 27 specialist sessions and six plenaries, bringing together over 90 key influencers and stakeholders from business, government, judiciary, commercial and academia, addressing developments and emerging trends across a wide range of sectors.
